Debussy remains an iconic figure even after 100 years of his death. Having composed a set of chamber
works for uncommon instrumental groupings (Six sonates pour divers instruments), he is a pioneer of the music
language in the 19th century, with his music changing the traditional harmonic system and instrumentation.
Debussy's Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp, written in 1915, is the first major composition written for this
ensemble. His evolutionary works have inspired more compositions for this trio by the next generation of
composers, such as Toru Takemitsu and Arnold Bax. With numerous festivals and concerts commemorating the
100th anniversary of Claude Debussy's death this year, Trois Voix is delighted to present Debussy’s music
alongside the world of other French and British composers in their concert “Divertissement”. Three outstanding
local musicians, Janet Cheung (Flute), Ringo Chan (Viola) and Judy Ho (Harp) will play music ranged from the
Baroque era to the Twentieth century. Apart from music originally written for this trio, they will also play
transcriptions from Jean Marie Leclair and Maurice Ravel. Their performance guarantees the audience a refreshing
and engaging journey of musical discovery.
